SNR of vinyl/vinyl playback is ~60dB, so apart from the first 10 to 12 most significant bits, the rest of the bits contain information that is of lower amplitude than the noise floor. These bits will be recording only noise.

It's not bad for the sound. But noise is hard to compress.

Increase the resolution from 16bit to 24bit increases the dynamic range and LP's do not have anywhere the dynamic range that the 24 bit offers. You will be recording much more low level noise from the LP that is not in the music. So you are wasting all that dynamic bandwidth for noise.

No, not at all bad for the sound. More bits can't hurt - just bad for disk drive space as no known lossless codec can compress random noise.
